4:00 am
how to argue with people and the nasty side of him, the one you love and hate. i wanted those emotions again and the movie was flat. >> that's a pretty riled steve wozniak. it's a good interview. that's all for us, though. anderson cooper starts right now. tonight, prince william's first interview and we'll investigate the charges that his mother wiz killed by british forces. and the wall of fire sweeping across the mountains. up close with the men fighting to save some of the most land on earth. and oscar pistorius charged with the murder of his girl friend. we begin with a freshly revived conspiracy theory of the death of princess diana. first, prince george. the first interview with his father. the royal familiarry releasing family photographs, one of baby
4:01 am
prince william and one of duchess kate. the other with the family cocker spaniel getting in on the act there. both were taken by michael middleton, her father. prince william sat down. we met with the prince, talking fatherhood, being a new parent and the moment they brought her son out of the hospital and into a media frenzy. >> i think more shocking dauntingness is what i felt. the thing is, i think i was on such a high anyway. really, we were happy to show him off to anyone who wants to see him as any new parent knows. you want to show off your child. he's the best looking. >> there's the new baby, the new royal heir in the united
4:02 am
kingdom. >> we were comfortable there. it's not somewhere i enjoy being. i know, in the position i'm in, what's required of me to do. i think it's, you know, one of those things. it's nice that people want to see george, so, you know, i'm glad he wasn't screaming his head off. that moment we came out with the car seat, we had a warning you might be doing that. >> fathers around the planet will be cursing you for doing it so easily. >> so sweet. believe me, it wasn't my first time. there's been speculation, i had to practice. i was terrified it was going to fall off or not close properly. i had practiced that. >> your decision to drive off, i
4:03 am
remember that as well. having my family in the car. that is something you were determined to do. >> where i can be, i'm as independent as i can be. same with catherine and harry. we have grown up with other generations. i feel if i can do it myself, i want to do it myself. there are times you can't and the system takes over or it's appropriate to do things differently. driving your son and wife away from the hospital was important to me. it's easier to do it yourself. >> you didn't stop? >> it's automatic. i's all right. the imagery, this was a modern monarchy. was it reading too much into it. you doing it your way? >> i think so.
4:04 am
i'm just doing the way i know. if it's the right way, if it's the wrong way, try to do it better. no, i'm quite -- i'm reasonably headstrong about what i believe in and go for. i have fantastic people around me and get great advise. >> the prince says baby george is already quite a character. >> he's a little bit of a rascal. he reminds me of my brother or me when i was younger, i oom not sure. he's doing well at the moment. >> i did the first nappie. i wasn't allowed to get away with it. he's growing quickly. he's a little fighter. he wiggles around quite a bit. she's doing a fantastic job. >> how is she? okay? >> yeah, very well. for me, catherine and now little
4:05 am
george are now my priorities. >> how he the dog cope sng. >> we have a lot of dogs and bringing a newborn take time to adapt. he's been all right. he's slobbering around the house. he's perfectly happy. >> how long before you go back to work? >> i'm looking forward to going back to work to get some sleep. i hope the first few shifts, i don't have any night jobs. >> a great passion is saving endangered species in africa. he wants his son to experience the same africa he saw as a boy and young man to spark in his son the passion of preserving rare animals like his father and him. >> you can do the same, prince george. >> at this rate, nothing is in his ear.
4:06 am
i'll have toy elephants covered in pushes making him grow up as if he's in the bush. >> he said the possibility of his son carrying on the royal family's legacy in africa isn't his immediate concern. >> i want him to sleep more. >> like any new mother or father, parenthood has surprised and amazed prince william. >> i think the last few weeks for me have been a very different emotional experience, something i never thought i would feel myself. i find, again, it's only been a short period. a lot of things affect me differently now. >> max foster joins us now. it's a fascinating interview and a human side of him. he didn't think -- he doesn't think of it as the next generation. it's not conscious on his part, just the way he does things. >> this is how he copes with what's around him.
4:07 am
he decides he's not going to be told what to do and do things in his own way. putting him in the car seat and driving off, he wants to do that. he wants to change the diapers. he wants to get up at night. kate gets up at night. they are all doing it. how long will it last. he has a support network he can lean on, if he needs to. >> the official portrait, it's interesting it's not done by an official photographer, it's done by kate's father. >> this is their back garden. it was done at the time of the interview. i don't think they wanted an invasion of their privacy there. a lot of criticism in the uk. about the quality of the pictures. they are charming. they are out of focus, they are into the light. they are historic pictures. they are the first pictures of george.
4:08 am
when he grows up, will he want a picture like that? they are charming, he gets away with it because he is grand dad. >> they are great pictures. great interview. the new allegations about the death of william's mother and dodi. several lengthy investigations put the blame on their drunken chauffeur. to some, the case is not closed. conspiracy theories keep popping up. scotland yard is giving one a closer look. members of britain's elite special air service, professional forces of assassinating the princess of wales. it's coming from the sunday people and a letter from the parents in law of a soldier. we are trying to make sense out
4:09 am
of this confusion. what do we know about the letter sent to authorities and the soldier who made the claims? >> according to the british newspaper, the sunday people, the letter is seven pages longhand written by the inlaws of a former british special forces sniper. in that letter, the sniper told his wife or boasted to his wife that the british s.a.s. was behind the deaths of princess diana and dodi. this information, according to the sunday people was introduced as evidence in the trial. the court-martialing of this sniper's former roommate was apparently a witness in the trial. unclear if british military officials knew of this information in 2011, why it's just reaching scotland yard right now. scat land yard is not commenting. anderson? >> it seems dubious to me. the estranged family of the
4:10 am
husband says the ex-wife said this. how seriously are they taking it? >> they are taking it seriously enough to assess over the weekend, scotland yard releasing a statement saying they are scoping the information, assessing the really vens and credibility. this is also the first information they are looking at this in this way since the conclusion of the inquest into princess diana's death. >> there have been other conspiracy theories in the past. >> absolutely. there was an entire investigation called operation pageant in the uk that lasted two years long. it looks into conspiracy theories. in addition to that, a separate investigation in france as well as an inquest. all three point to the same conclusion that princess diana died as a result of the gross negligence of her driver and the
4:11 am
paparazzi that tragic night in paris. >> thank you for joining us. joining uls now is katie for britain's sunday mail. kate, what are your sources saying about the diana news? i'm not much of a conspiracy theorist. >> buckingham palace, kensington palace spoke to a couple sources who said don't read too much into it. look at the timing, days before the anniversary of her death. has itd been done to maximize a level of publicity. it's extraordinary. she reports in the papers here in the uk saying don't read too much into it, frankly. >> it's interesting how much coverage it's gotten in the united states. it's the first conspiracy theory surrounding her death. over the years, they have all been shown to be false.
4:12 am
what motivations about someone wanting to murder. i don't understand the motivation? >> i think a lot of it is that diana was such an iconic woman, for many, it's not enough that she died tragically in a terrible accident. people want reasons, they want conspiracy theories. they want something with all the drama that acomp anied her life. >> as a friend -- go ahead. >> you know, anderson, i was supposed to be with diana on vacation at this time. we plan add four-day vacation in milan. due to the sudden passing of my father did i have to cancel with her at the very last minute and fly off to south africa for my father's funeral. when you think about the consensus of cancelling a vacation.
4:13 am
he had four days free. at the very, very last minute she went back with dodi and this accident happened. so last minute and so changing of, you know, going on vacation with me than going with dodi. it's so unfortunate that william and harry who have shown immense dignity and all the stuff they have to go through once again have to go through the rehash of publicity seekers. >> do you think it is publicity speakers or that some of the attraction is, as katety was saying, people can't believe somebody so special died in such a tragic way and there's not more to it? >> i think because of who diana was, it's so difficult to believe she was in a regular accident and a horrible accident and, you know, it's hard for people to accept that. >> yeah. i want to turn to prince william.
4:14 am
katie, you thought the idea the photos were taken by kate's father instead of a royal photographer underlines this idea of william as a new generation? >> i do. i think the pictures are gorgeous. they are not professional. they are too overexposed on the right hand side of kate's face. for me, that's the charm of the pictures. they are taken by michael middleton, kate's father in their backyard where they moved after the birth of prince george and spent the last couple weeks with kate's family. it's completely noble. it's wonderfully fresh. the two of them look so very happy. one suspects it's because they have been allowed to enjoy this freedom, this time together. >> if you truly knew his generation, the selfy of himself, baby and wife. i have to say, watching the interview, i kept thinking it
4:15 am
sounds like a normal dad. a likable guy. do you think that is part of his mother's legacy to him? do you see a lot of her in him? >> i see so much of diana in william. one of the things she told me is she so much wanted william to have a normal life with his family in the future with whoever he wed and had children with them. all of her dreams have come true. her legacy came true. the influence she had on william, the normalcy is showing through greatly. she would be so happy. >> she lives on with her children. thank you for being with us. let me know what you think. a dangerous day on the fire lines. one of the worst fires burning. later, breaking news with egypt's old dictator getting out of jail. the leader who drove them from power was arrested.

4:18 am
4:19 am
welcome back. if you're in the west, chances are there is a wildfire within a small distance. for tens of thousands of people, the flames are closer than that. take a look. dozens of wildfires consuming hundreds and thousands of acres. each of those flames on the map
4:20 am
represent a fire, obvious lease. the big pink area running from southern california up into the northern tier, red flag warnings, conditions ideal for new fires to spread and spread they have. this is the beaver creek fire consuming more than 100,000 in idaho's sun valley area. contained and more than 2,000 homes under evacuation orders. some of those vacation spots for tom cruise and 1,000 hot shots have been moved to that fire line alone. more than a thousand hot shots and other crews on that line alone. gary tuchman spent today with some of them. >> reporter: the amount of land that has been in flames is an area larger than many big cities, over 100,000 acres. but as dangerous as the fire has been, there is this gratifying fact. there have been no deaths or serious injuries so far. >> people in this whole valley have been really listening to the warnings, evacuating when they are asked to. some of them even evacuating
4:21 am
before they had to and not trying to stay home and be a hero and save their own house which is a big risk. a one-inch garden hose is not going to save your house. >> reporter: choppers dropping retardant on the flames. those efforts have succeeded in dramatically improving the situation on the ground as this week begins. >> the weather is helping us out a little bit and we have the resources we need, which has been crucial. just the little bit of cloud cover today has made all of the difference in the world in how things look out there right now. >> reporter: the mountainous terrain is very dangerous. there are more than 1,050 firefighters on the scene including 12 hot shot crews. there are 15 helicopters. according to authorities, more than 10,000 homes, businesses and other types of buildings that are officially considered threatened. but amazingly, almost all of those structures remain
4:22 am
undamaged. at least one house and several other buildings have been destroyed and it's possible that others have not been reached yet but as for now the people of idaho are still nervous but are hoping that they've seen the worst. >> gary tuchman joins us from hailey, idaho. there are more than 1,000 fire personnel fighting the fire. some of them are private firefighters, right, who were hired? >> reporter: well, that's right. when you get your insurance for your home in this day and age, you can buy a rider that includes private fire protection for your home. in areas like sun valley idaho, they have celebrities and successful businessmen, they pay the extra money and then train firemen to come to your house and they guard it. now, they have to work in cooperation with the city, county, and state officials. it's not only to the benefit of the homeowner, it's also to the benefit of the insurance company because by spending a few thousand dollars to save an 800,000, $2 million house, the insurance companies can save a lot of money and meanwhile the
4:23 am
homeowners can save money. that's what we're seeing. >> it's like the fire patrols that used to exist. gary, thank you very much. back east, the problem is too much rain. a massive storm system is lingering. flood warnings and watches are up from the gulf coast and florida panhandle all the way into south carolina. gulfport, mississippi, the floodwaters receding there but with more rain in the forecast they may rise yet again. tracking it all for us is chad myers. ha is the latest, chad? >> anderson, when you have a stationary front, like a stationary bike, things don't move. you can pedal that bike all you want, it is not going anywhere. these storms aren't going anywhere. so what is raining now was raining an hour ago and what was raining this weekend is pretty much still raining at this point. look at these five-day rainfall totals. this is from friday afternoon to now. 12.5 inches in florida thachlt is a beach. not much of a beach vacation. panama city, popular place, ten inches of rainfall over the weekend. everywhere that you see red, that's six inches. at purple higher than that, and the ten-inch bulls eyes, macon,
4:24 am
georgia, has 24 more inches on ground than they should have. so when it rains, it floods. there's no place for the water to soak in. it's been like that for days and days and days and the rain continues. there are very few happy people in atlanta thinking can i go to a baseball game? it's raining every day, literally, anderson. >> any idea how long it's going to go for? >> well, until this thing moves out and don't see that happening. even with the front that is going to dry out chicago and buffalo by thursday, friday, it never gets far enough south to push the rain away. it's going to get down to georgia, stop again, and we're going to start this all over next week. >> wow. chad, thank you. keep following it. go to for more. up next, reports of a big arrest made and a rising death toll. latest developments ahead. also, oscar pistorius is in court today indicted in the
4:25 am
valentine's day shooting death of his girlfriend reeva steenkamp.
4:26 am
4:27 am
4:28 am
breaking news tonight in egypt. state television is reporting that security forces have arrested the spiritual leader of the muslim brotherhood. that's him right there. the picture is just out on nile state run tv. this comes with deadly violence. i want to warn you, this is graphic. state tv reports that 25
4:29 am
soldiers were ambushed and killed by armed militants near the sinai peninsula. since last wednesday, violent clashes between the military and supporters of the ousted mohamed morsi killed around 900 people. morsi has not been seen publicly since july 3rd. they continue their investigation of him and today in a criminal court acquitted hosni mubarak in a corruption case and ordered his release. however, he's still in custody tonight. meanwhile, there are growing calls for the obama administration to cut off aid to egypt. joining me is nick paton walsh. what more do we know about it, nick? >> reporter: state media is saying that he was picked up not far from the mosque where the large sit-in protest that was
4:30 am
disrupted five days ago where they kept the dead. they've been showing pictures of him on state television in a white shirt and next to him is a man guarding him with an ak-47. these images very much part of the government. in the past few days they are fighting terrorism and that's obviously their word for the muslim brotherhood. now, mohamed badie in custody. he's been wanted for a number of charges, a whole scope of things it brotherhood are accused of. but this, of course, will feed in to the fears that now the brotherhood are going to be pushed underground. there's no scope for negotiation. that's been off the cards for a number of days, if not weeks. we've seen the violence in the past week and now we have the majority of their leaders in state custody and these images which are, frankly, him on parade. the army, administration making it quite clear that they have the upper hand, anderson.
4:31 am
>> calls have been growing to cut off an economic aid. what is the latest on that? >> reporter: what is remarkable is we keep hearing these calls and we keep hearing the u.s. saying it's reviewing its aid but they have not made any change to the economic assistance, the $1.3 billion worth of military aid. that is still under review. there's been no significant change. but each time washington makes hint at this, we hear from arab backers who quite explicitly said today that if the eu or u.s. cut any of their aid to egypt, they will make up the difference and that, of course, is going to insulate for any action but part of the relationship is about prestige. the egyptian army will be
4:32 am
unwilling to jeopardize that. >> amidst all of this turmoil, has there been a lot of reaction or any reaction to the idea that hosni mubarak would be a free man any day now? >> reporter: that came from his lawyer. it was his lawyer saying as many attorneys would do for their client, that he thinks he can be out in a few weeks because the corruption charges against him were dropped. there's still a retrial set for accusations that he committed violence in 2011. also other corruption charges on the books, too. we saw a lot of noise in the state media about potential for him to be released but in reality that's far off. this is a distraction from the problems on the street and the administration really has to get the rein and potentially making them seen as more viable. >> nick paton walsh, thank you. susan hendricks is here with the 360 bulletin. susan? investigators from the
4:33 am
united nations are in syria to determine if chemical weapons have been used in the long-running civil war. the obama administration says that syria's government has used them but syria claims that they have been used by opposition fighters. glenn greenwald is vowing to write aggressive stories about britain's espionage program after his partner was detained by authorities for nine hours. his laptop and phone were confiscated. new jersey governor chris christie signed a bill that outlaws gay inversion therapy for minors. it's highly controversial. it's claimed that gay people can change their sexual orientation through counseling. but chris christie sided with opponents who say it is harmful. you've got to see this. the obamas have a new dog. she's a little more than a year old. her name is sunny and she arrived at the white house today. she's a portuguese waterdog and it looks like bo is happy.
4:34 am
just ahead, to his fans, oscar pistorius is a hero and role model. he's now also an accused murderer. we'll show you what happened at his indictment and what his girlfriend's killing has exposed about his past. and also lindsey lohan sat down with oprah winfrey. she vows that this time will be different and you might be surprised at the reason she gave ahead. bell rings ) they remind me so much of my grandkids. wish i saw mine more often, but they live so far away. i've been thinking about moving in with my daughter and her family. it's been pretty tough since jack passed away. it's a good thing you had life insurance through the colonial penn program. you're right. it was affordable, and we were guaranteed acceptance. guaranteed acceptance? it means you can't be turned down because of your health. you don't have to take a physical or answer any health questions. they don't care about your aches and pains. well, how do you know? did you speak to alex trebek? because i have a policy myself. it costs just $9.95 a month per unit.
4:35 am
it's perfect for my budget. my rate will never go up. and my coverage will never go down because of my age. affordable coverage and guaranteed acceptance? we should give them a call. do you want to help protect your loved ones from the burden of final expenses? if you're between 50 and 85, you can get quality insurance that does not require any health questions or a medical exam. your rate of $9.95 a month per unit will never increase, and your coverage will never decrease -- that's guaranteed. so join the six million people who have already called about this insurance. whether you're getting new insurance or supplementing what you already have, call now and ask one of their representatives about a plan that meets your needs. so, what are you waiting for? go call now! we'll finish up here.
4:36 am
a terrifying car accident of a tv legend. details when we continue.
4:37 am
4:38 am
crime and punishment now. oscar pistorius was charged today with the premeditated murder of his girlfriend reeva steenkamp. if convicted, he faces a mandatory life sentence. this comes six months after steenkamp's death of what would have been her 30th birthday. he never denied that he killed steenkamp but said it was an
4:39 am
accident. before the charges were read, the double amputee held hands with his sister and brother and appeared to be praying and wiped away tears. he is a role model for disabled athletes. many of his fans are standing by him as he faces the legal battle of his life but troubling details of the athlete are also now emerging. drew griffin reports. >> reporter: it's a scene most south africans have trouble with. the blade runner who dazzled the world now standing, accused of murder. charming, smiling, seemingly a perfect ambassador for his country and for the disabled worldwide. but those who knew him, like professional soccer player mark bachelor, say pistorius had a dark side. >> he would have a trip switch and get violent and he'd fight with people and cause a lot of problems. that's what happened with me. >> reporter: since his arrest,
4:40 am
there's been talk about angry outbursts, boating accidents, car wrecks, all with details conspicuously left out of the press. oscar pistorius' lifestyle was covered up or, more accurately, covered very little by an adoring news media. >> on record, there really isn't a problem. >> that's the thing. so many incidents have happened. they have been well documented. things that happened in the last five or six years with oscar pistorius and these kind of cases have disappeared. >> reporter: that is, until now. beloved here or not, south africans are having a hard time understanding that this tale on a february night the scared pistorius shot through the closed door of his own bathroom not knowing who or what was on the other side. >> that doesn't sound like what you would advocate as responsible gun ownership?
4:41 am
>> sir, i'm going to be very honest and very frank to you. it was very tragic that this happened but in south african practical shooting association, if you do not see a target, do not engage it. bottom line. so shooting for oscar to shoot through a door, what do we know what you are shooting at? >> you should wake up in the morning expect reeva to give a phoncall. >> reporter: for reeva steenkamp's family, most are determined not to attend any trial. last spring her uncle and cousin kim martin said the less they hear about the details, the better. >> none of us are going to be represented at the court or the trial. none of the family will go up. we won't be present. i can tell you that now. and for that reason, it's not about the court case. it's about reeva. i would like to be face-to-face
4:42 am
with him and forgive him. >> you would forgive him, mike? >> yeah. >> reporter: whether this was a tragic accident or -- >> whatever the outcome, i feel, my belief and if christ could forgive when he died on that cross, why can't i? >> reporter: the trial is now scheduled to begin next march. the formal accusation of premeditated murder filed today came on what would have been reeva steenkamp's 30th birthday. drew griffin, cnn, atlanta. >> if convicted of the charges filed today, pistorius faces a mandatory life sentence. let's dig deeper now. kelly, you say the prosecution is being too aggressive. how so? >> well, they keep pursuing this charge of premeditated murder and they've taken that line from the very beginning of bail and
4:43 am
from bail right up until now it doesn't seem to be any significant evidence that would support that version of events. >> jeff, do you think it's an uphill climb for the prosecution? >> it's hard to know. the piece of information that we had not had before is the government's claim -- and it's only a claim at this point -- that there was evidence of an argument first. because that would be very significant, if they could prove that there was an argument first, that would certainly -- >> if neighbors heard a woman screaming before the shooting that contradicts his story? >> and that's a new claim in the indictment. obviously we'll see whether they can back that up. but if they can, then i'm not sure if it's such an uphill claim. also, remember, he did shoot repeatedly behind a closed door. what they did is a lesser included offense. the idea of recklessly shooting anyone behind a door is criminal behavior and that's what they are trying to do is essentially cover their bases.
4:44 am
>> all along though, jeff, you've said his story is beyond belief? >> i think his story is pretty incredible. there's a lot we don't know. in south african law, they list the witnesses. there are almost 100 witnesses listed. i'm not sure they will call all of those people at trial, but that suggests that the prosecution has a full story to tell. and i still think it's a very difficult claim for the defense for pistorius that he took all these shots just on the off chance there was some intruder in his house without knowing anything more. >> also, kelly, the whole notion that he thought she was still in the bed, that he would have gotten out of bed without even looking to see if this woman is still sleeping next to him when he thinks there's an intruder in the house, that seems hard to imagine. >> i actually take a slightly different view on this in the sense from a cultural
4:45 am
perspective in south africa. cases similar to the events that pistorius is putting forward have happened before fairly frequently. you have to remember that we are living in an environment where people are paranoid about violent crime and, in fact, about house breaking in particular. and they have been many other cases where a person has been killed having been mistaken for an intruder. with regard to the issue of him not checking when he got out of bed, we have to go back to what his original affidavit was at the bail hearing. according to that affidavit, he originally got out of bed to go out on to the balcony and bring in a fan and then close the balcony door. and it was at that point that he claims he heard a noise in the bathroom. he didn't have his prosthetics on, was filled with a sense of terror. it was dark and then according to his version this tragic accident occurred. so he wouldn't have necessarily checked for steenkamp in the bad
4:46 am
when he first got out because, according to his version of events, he wasn't fearful of an intruder at that point. >> it still raises a question of how do you notice there's no one in bed with you? it's one bed. that's a pretty difficult claim to sustain. >> at this point we don't know much about the forensics and that can be -- that's obviously going to be a huge thing. >> very important. the angle of the bullets. if he didn't have his prosthetics on or he didn't -- his version is he didn't. where does the angle of the bullet relate? >> and the other issue that i find interesting here is that south africa, like a lot of other former british colonies, doesn't have a jury system. arguments that might emotionally appeal to a jury won't work. it won't necessarily work. so i just think that the issue of judge only trials presents a complexity to what would be different than here. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. up next, new developments in the case of a doctor accused of

time now for "the ridiculist." tonight we are adding connecticut cable junkies. last night the cable went out in fairfield, connecticut. it's something that we deal with from time to time. what did some people do in fairfield? naturally they did what any normal citizen would do, they called the police. that's right. not only did several people call the police department's nonemergency line and i think even nonemergency is an over statement for a cable outage but one person called 911. >> 911. >> hi, i'm just trying to figure out what is going on. we have no tv. >> ma'am, 911 is for a life-threatening emergency. >> i know that. i know that. >> is this a life-threatening emergency? >> no, we're just trying to find out what is going on?

called 911 for less than urgent reasons. >> i think we're dying. >> how much did you guys have? >> i don't know. we made brownie and i think we're dead. i really do. time is going by really, really slow. waiting for the red wings to score. >> in case you realized, that guy was really stoned and i'm guessing that guy is still waiting for the red wings to score. but it's not even sports or special brownies that prompt people to call 911. nothing gets people fired up quite like a food fight. >> what do you need the police department for? >> well i'm eating at this restaurant all you can eat fish. >> uh-huh. >> i just asked for some more fish. they gave me four pieces. and they refused to give me any more fish. and it's right out on the sign in front of the building, all you can eat fish fry. >> they said a
